Jeff Gooch replied to Justin Lang's discussion Lighting Control Getting TOO Complicated?
"I think every console operator should have to learn on a two-scene preset board.  Or at least a Hog. Although most of it is probably in the pre-program....most of the light rigs have so much versatility in them, there's no way an op can do…"

"Apple's Motion, Cinema 4D, After Effects.  All these have the power to do what you want. I suppose it might matter what you plan to play them back on....for a sequence like that, it might make sense to build stills and play them back with…"

Jeff Gooch commented on Jeff Gooch's blog post Critical tools for the gig
"I guess it depends on the rig. Color temps (if taken in to consideration by the LD) can be a bitch, but if the right instruments with the right settings are done, then - Cake!.  A short time back, a meter would've been a true luxury. I…"

Wayne Lambert commented on Jeff Gooch's blog post Critical tools for the gig
"Nice post, Jeff. I'm not really a projectionist, but sometimes I feel like one... As an LD, I've found that my color temp meter has become even more useful than my light meter. Cameras have become so sensitive that super bright levels are…"

Jeff Gooch replied to Steven Hall's discussion Architectural Projection
"As with most things, it depends on what you're trying to do. If you are just trying to highlight the scaffold members, you could take a picture, make a mask in photoshop, and then scale it and send it to a secondary monitor, which would be what…"

Dub Module Festival Mapping

Posted on February 29, 2012 at 6:59am 0 Comments

Here's an excerpt from a post that appears on

Festival rigs are nothing new in the rock an roll biz, there's a standard rig(same for everyone) - usually one console- and the LD gets to figure it out when he\she gets there. What do you do when its a VJ situation? The number one rule of festivals: get creative and keep it simple! Check out this mapping posted by Dub Module created for the Splore Festival,…


Obscura Digital Maps Social Data

Posted on October 10, 2011 at 10:07am 0 Comments

While not strictly lighting per se, although it could loosely be called entertainment, Obscura Digital, the folks that brought us the coolest billiards table EVER unveiled a physical, social, and augmented reality experience dubbed “Connections” at F8, Facebook’s 2011 developer conference. Attendees swipe in to the experience using their RFID enabled event badge. Multiple overhead projectors map visuals to the floor and an…


The new PLSN app.....

Posted on October 1, 2011 at 5:41pm 2 Comments

Anyone else try it?  I'm digging the Android PLSN app. It even installed on the SD card so I don't have to suck up resources on the phone.  Great. One more thing to feel I need to do on a gig......seriously- it pretty cool.  Links to articles and emailable....although I'm not sure what the advantage is over using a plain ole browser......we shall see.  Nice work kids!  (this is not a paid advert, although if it were, I'd gush much more....)

Critical tools for the gig

Posted on September 27, 2011 at 6:21pm 2 Comments

I saw that B&H ran a great article on light meters and it got me thinking- what are the absolutely necessary tools for a projectionist to carry? When you show up to a paying gig, what is it that’s going to set you apart to do an excellent job and have people be happy with your day rate? Projection is expensive and when you come prepared like an amateur, you can expect to be paid like an amateur.…
